Owned by Clearwater Bay resident Wayne Parfitt, Piccolo’s has a modern yet dainty vibe. The menu is Italian fusion with a good mix of meat and seafood dishes. The eatery offers an extensive range of dishes, from pork belly lollipops ($125) and crumbed calamari rings ($125) to New Zealand tenderloin ($208) and Linguine Vongole ($150). Save some room for their selection of sweet treats – try the chocolate chip cookie skillet ($75) which is served with chunky choc chips, caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. The kids menu includes fish and chips, spaghetti bolognese, chicken fried rice and kids pizzas ($70 each; for 12 years and under). Piccolos’ second floor can be hired for private parties and occasions.
Best for group dining
Piccolos specialises in Italian dishes, but a good number of menu items are Asian. Try the Thai prawn cakes ($135), soy glazed salmon steak with creamy wasabi mash ($205) or their risotto with an Asian twist, flavoured with chicken and lemongrass ($150).
